Scent-sational! 5 stellar ways to make your space smell good
Light ‘em up!
We heart candles, big and small. Snag a few votives and
holders to scatter along your dresser, or pillars to decorate—and
illuminate—your desk. Pick your pile o’ wax ‘n’ wicks carefully, though, babe.
Some candles are much more fragrant—and potentially irritating to those with
allergies—than others. For particularly strong scents, consider keeping them handy...and unlit.
For a vintage vibe, you can’t beat a pretty bowl piled high
with dried herbs, flowers and spices. For autumn, we’re loving warm
scents—cinnamon, vanilla, apples and oranges, cloves and nutmeg…mmm! When the
holidays roll around, try festive notes of peppermint and pine. And for
everyday, choose your year-round faves. Check out our fall potpourri DIY, or pick up a pack at a home goods store near you.
Grab the Febreze
Looking for a quick, bottled fix? Head to Walmart or Target and take your pick of Febreze’s line of air effects. A quick spritz will leave your laundry (and the rest of your boudoir) smelling fresh and clean. For a dose of fab fall smells, try their so-sweet seasonal lines. Heaven!
Cinnamon stick savvy
Not big on potpourri and not allowed to light up candles? Grab a small drinking glass or mason jar and head to the grocery store for a package of cinnamon sticks. Toss a few in and enjoy.
